Hollywood Man Accused Of Raping Teen In Publix Supermarket Bathroom

A Hollywood man is accused of raping a teen in a Publix restroom. 

Authorities say 28-year-old Leandro Mlodziejewski threatened the girl that he would post the video of the altercation online in an attempt to keep her silent.

Mlodziejewski now faces two counts of sexual battery of a minor and two counts of lewd and lascivious behavior in the presence of a minor. 

The Hollywood Police Department alleges Mlodziejewski sexual assaulted a 17-year-old girl, who was 16 at the time of one of the incidents.

According to an arrest report, Mlodziejewski knows the victim because his younger sister is dating the victim's younger brother. On June 27, Mlodziejewski allegedly sexually assaulted the then-16-year-old and a 20-year-old woman, while the two girls were both intoxicated and possibly drugged, in front of his sister and the victim's brother. 

On Saturday night, the four went to the Publix on Polk Street. The victim told police that Mlodziejewski put his hands down her pants several times as they walked through the supermarket. 

Mlodziejewski then led her into the family restroom, forced her against the changing table and allegedly raped her. While he was trying to record the encounter with his cellphone, the victim was able to push him off and leave, police said.

Angry, Mlodziejewski told her girl to "act normal" or else he will post the video online, the victim told detectives.

The arrest report continues that Mlodziejewski drove the victim and the others to North Beach Park, where he allegedly tried to coerce her into having sex in a wooded area. When she refused, he became upset. He drove his sister and the victim home without incident.

Mlodziejewski's sister and the victim's brother both told police Mlodziejewski kept touching the victim and telling her he wanted to have sex. The two also confirmed the June 27 incident to police.

Mlodziejewski was arrested in his Hollywood home Tuesday. 

He was being held at the Broward County jail on a $200,000 bond.
